Abstract
In 1987 the first laser-based emissivity measuring pyrometer was introduced. This instrument is currently in worldwide use in industrial and research applications. In 1990 a fiber optic version was developed; this provided broader temperature ranges, smaller target sizes, lower cost and most importantly flexibility of sensor head size, shape and materials. Furthermore the fiber optic version meets the requirements for on-line IR temperature measurement and control in metallurgical, chemical, ceramic and electronics manufacturing where portable instrument access is prohibited and where the sensor environment is harsh.
